Hailed for its tonal versatility, superb dynamic range, and exceptionally comfortable playing feel, the Stratocaster is one of the most recognisable, and beloved guitars ever built. The delicate curves of the body allows the guitar to drop sweetly into the perfect position, whilst the slender neck is suited to many playing styles, which is why the Strat has been seen in the hands of players from virtually every musical genre. The Squier Standard Stratocaster has all the features we’ve come to love, and adds a flame maple top for even greater tonal functionality – as well as providing a stunning finish -, at an exceptionally affordable price that everyone can take advantage of.
The body of the Standard Stratocaster is crafted from agathis, a lightweight tonewood that shares similar tonal properties to mahogany, yielding warm tones with a generous low-end rumble. Married to the agathis is the gorgeous flame maple top, which helps to brighten up the overall tonal output of the Strat. The cool and sophisticated transparent ebony finish allows the natural grain of the flame maple to shine through in style.
Aiding the flame maple top in rounding out the overall tone, and guaranteeing articulation and clarity throughout, is the sweetly shaped C-shape maple neck. Paired with the neck is a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard, which provides a sumptuous playing feel. Topped with white dot position inlays, the neck and fingerboard partnership is a joy to navigate, ensuring you’ll never want to put this awesome guitar down.
Powered with 3 Alnico single-coil pickups - in the neck, middle and bridge positions respectively - the Standard Strat can submit a vast range of tones, across a huge dynamic range. Control comes in the form of a 5-way pickup selector switch, as well as master volume and master tone control pots. Whether you're looking to follow in the tonal footsteps of Hendrix or SRV, hybrid-pick your way through some Country, kick through some grunge or rock, then this setup will equip you to take on all-comers.
The body has been equipped with a 2-point synchronised tremolo with block saddles, designed to facilitate smooth vibrato technique whilst keeping strings held firm and true. The standard die-cast chrome tuning machines carry out their task of upholding tuning integrity faithfully.
If you’re a beginner or intermediate player who is looking for a robust, reliable, tonally versatile, and very enjoyable to play Strat, then the Squier Standard Stratocaster electric guitar with flame maple top would make a fine addition to your collection.
